For residents who use Amazon.com to do their shopping, there may be a safer alternative to picking up their gifts.
Instead of their homes, shoppers can have their gifts sent to a local Amazon Locker, which is a secure self-service kiosk where customers can pick up their packages at a time convenient for them.
Carson’s Department Store on 2550 Sycamore Road is the only Amazon Locker location in the area. To have packages sent there, locate the store’s locker on Amazon’s website and add it to your account’s address book. Once you are ready for checkout, select the locker as the shipping address.
Once the package has been delivered, an email will be sent with a six-digit code, which will open the locker and allow your package to be retrieved. Customers will have three calendar days to get their item from the Amazon Locker before it is returned for a refund.
